Elizabeth's stunning fresh bouquet of peonies and orchids shown above was shipped to us after her destination wedding in Vienna, Austria. The first image was taken when we recieved the bouquet to our studio. Ten weeks later we shipped her completed artwork  along with two additional frames for her family back to her home in Canada.

How do I keep it fresh until its ready to be brought to you?

On the day of the wedding, when the bouquet is no longer needed, request that the venue place it in water, it in a cool place out of direct sunlight. This is particularly important if the weather or venue is hot as it will prevent the flowers from wilting. Please do not place in a fridge or freezer.

How do I prepare the bouquet for shipping?

  1. Prepare a box big enough to comfortably fit the bouquet but not so big that it will allow too much movement and cause damage. Add soft stuffing (paper towels work brilliantly). Please avoid using plastic as it causes condensation.
  2. Wet some paper towels and secure around the bottom of the bouquet stems only with a piece of twine or elastic band. Next wrap some tin foil around the damp tissue, to contain the moisture to stems. Please avoid getting the actual flower petals wet.
  3. Don’t forget to ship any additional bits (medals, buttonholes, coins etc.) you want included in your piece.
  4. Add your name or booking form with details of any additional pieces you've added.
  5. Label the box as fragile and ship using express post.
  6. Please address the box to: SIÓG Botanicals, 3 Market Square, Kildare Town, Co. Kildare, Ireland, R51 RX93
